Tuesday Throwdown is sponsored by My Grafico this week and our Challenge is red white and blue. We were given a set of fun precolored digi flower and border images called spotsy dotsy floral collection.

I duplicated one of the open daisy images to form a chain, cut it out and put across the bottom. I then used a couple other flower images cut out and foam dotted on. I added button centers to all the flowers. Next added the daisy precolored border. The red border is a MS daisy punch. A RW&B ribbon and punched tag finished the

Just returned last night from our 43rd Reunion( Wow can we really be that old?) this weekend.... it way to short!! Here are a couple pics. We floated down Oak Creek a couple times, hiked, shopped, spent lots of time visiting and of course grazed on all the wonderful food :)
I took a bunch of old hats and scarves. Ended up one hat short so I had to wear a scarf :)
Another girl brought these fifties cat eye sunglasses so we took lots of fun photos around the property where we were staying.
This year an emergency arose and one had to leave but this is the crazy group which we have jokingly become known as the Ya YA Sisters.

We all started kindergarten together one left in our sophomore and one in our junior year the rest of us graduated together.
